#FBFF: 4 Spring Trends I Love


Happy to say FBFF is back! Katy of Modly Chic has thankfully decided to resurrect Friend Beauty Friend Friday and reached out to some bloggers to be a part of her editorial board. I was happy to help! How it works is that each week there will be a topic and a few of us will discuss. Today's topic is Spring Trends We Love and I'm participating along with Katy, Arash and Kristin Marie. See their answers below and feel free to share your favorite trends in the comment section!

1. Long bobs (or ""lobs""). I'm happy to see celebs ditch the hair extensions and opting for fresh new 'dos. I recently cut 7 inches off and opting for a bob. I feel so much lighter! 2. Menswear. I'm always excited for menswear to be a trend for any season because it fits my tomboy style. Blue oxford button ups were seen all over the runway (like Alexander Wang) and it's definitely a style I've been envying for awhile. I think I'll have to finally invest in one... probably from the men's section 3. Radiant Orchid. Actually a Pantone color I like! I think it's a gorgeous purple that flatters many types of people. I'm also enjoying it on my nails with Julep's Rae. 4. Wide leg trousers. I've written about my disdain for skinny jeans so I'm excited to see wide leg trousers are chic again. Very '70s/American Hustle-esque."

  Arash: I didn't want to pick something obvious like florals (who doesn't love florals for spring?) because I had visions of Miranda Priestly and that line that sparked a thousand memes. So instead I've gone for something a bit more unexpected… Oxford cut-outs. They're my new favourite shoes and the best bit is… they're flat! Which is pretty peculiar coming from me, considering I once wrote a post titled 'why you should wear heels with everything'. There's some amazing styles for all budgets about this season, in dusty pinks, metallics and bold hues. All with contemporary cut-outs. Giving them a bit more of a wow factor, which I feel flats sometimes lack, and keep your feet fresh (no sweaty feet here people). There's just something really chic about them on a woman and they amazing with everything from jeans to skirts and spring dresses and will carry you through to summer.

If I had to pick the things I'm reaching for now and shopping for I'd have to say these five top my list... 1. Aztec patterns - My younger sister is Aztec everything at the moment, and while I'm not reaching her level of obsession there is something about this geometric pattern that draws me in. 2. Reflective Shades Can't pass up the newest trend in sunglasses, which ensures no one can see what you're looking at. HA! 3. Gladiator-style shoes. These come back every few years, but I'm liking the latest embellishments and materials, including camo, that are being used this year. 4. The patterned maxi. Forget the boring black maxi dress, or even the basic stripes. Today's maxis, have color, style and play with patterns. 5. Funny running tees. Maybe it is my desire to hit the pavement hard now that I can actually run outside, but I can't pass up all these tees and tanks that have funny workout slogans. Because let's be honest, Burpees Don't Really Like You Either
Kristin: With Spring here (finally!), there are so many trends that are available, wearable, and ready to enter my closet. A few of my favorites are the iridescence rend, the full skirt, the ever classic black and white, and of course, the geometric prints.
